High Performance Coatings              

ADVANTAGES

FPU® is a high performance coating designed to overcoat virtually any surface and make it resistant to corrosion, abrasion, impact, chemical attack and ultra-violet radiation. With its superior adhesion to ferrous and non-ferrous metals, timber, fiberglass, concrete and masonry, this coating provides a superior alternative to more conventional coatings such as epoxy, enamels, vinyl ester, polyester and conventional polyurethane.
